The following credits are how they are displayed on-screen (or as close as possible).

Opening credits

Closing credits


  • This is the first episode of the series to have a real celebrity as a prominent supporting character.

Cultural references

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • After Shaggy helped Fred out of the magic cabinet, the latter's eyebrow colors change blonde, and stayed when he unmasked the ghost, and changed back to black in the next scene.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Curiously, Daphne is not the least bit jealous of the attraction between Lindsay and Fred, like she has been when an attractive woman shows any interest in him in recent years (starting with Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island). It's possible this is because she doesn't see any danger since having a romantic relationship with a celebrity would be out of the question.
